AM 21 YEARS OLD. I HAVE ENDOMETRIOSIS WHICH I JUST RECENTLY FOUND OUT IS AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE. I HAVE BEEN HAVING ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS LATELY AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME.

HERE ARE MY SYMPTOMS:

1-ABDOMINAL PAIN SOMETIMES SEVERE
2-CONSTANT LOWER BACK PAIN-AT TIMES SEVERE AS WELL
3-HIP AND LEG PAIN
4-HEADACHES EVERYDAY ALMOST
5-ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION
6-LOSS OF PUBIC HAIR
7-HEART PALPITATIONS
8-DIZZINESS
9-HEAD TINGLING
10-UPPER LEFT ABDOMINAL PAIN
11-NASUEA
12-OCCASIONAL DIARRHEA
13-TIRED MOST OF THE TIME


THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A WHILE BUT SOME OF THE SYMPTOMS JUST STARTED IN THE LAST MONTH OR TWO. i AM VERY CONCERNED AND EAGER TO FIND OUT WHAT IT COULD BE AND WHAT STEPS I NEED TO TAKE TO GET A QUICK DIAGNOSIS. IF YOU HAVE ANY OPINIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THEM NO MATTER WHAT THEY MAY BE. I AM DESPERATE FOR AN ANSWER. I DON'T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE AND SO I DON'T WANT TO GO TO THE DOCTOR IF IT IS MOST LIKELY NOT SERIOUS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.

ALSO I'VE BEEN GETTING ALOT OF UNEXPLAINED BRUISES ON MY LEGS AND MY GUMS HAVE BEEN BLEEDING ALOT LATELY. IT DOESN'T COME FROM BRUSHING IT JUST HAPPENS ON IT'S OWN. I AM STARTING TO GET VERY SCARED ABOUT THIS AND I DON'T HAVE MEDICAL INSURANCE SO I NEED IDEAS SO I DON'T WASTE MONEY ON THINGS I DON'T FEEL ARE POSSIBILITY'S UNLESS I HAVE TO. ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU

I woke up and felt really wierd sort of out of place. anyways when i tried to say things my words came out all kinds of scrambled and nothing i was saying made any sense. shortly after a had really bad headache hit me like a ton of bricks. It hurt so much that I was in tears. I felt sick. i went to the doctors cuz i was pregnant. I never told him about me not being able to talk bc i was scared. my blood pressure was like 151/97.

Is it all the same thing or is it different things? i am desperate for an answer. so help if you can please any and all ideas are appreciated. Thanx in advancee

Thank you so much for your help.Also i've been getting alot of unexplained bruises on my legs and my gums have been bleeding alot lately. It doesn't come from brushing it just happens on it's own. I am starting to get very scared about this and i don't have medical insurance so i need ideas so i don't waste money on things i don't feel are possibility's unless i have to. Once again thank younow my lips are going numb at times! All the pain seems to stay on the left except the elbow and shoulder pain. And every now and then i get wierd abdominal pain next to my hips.

Thanx in advanceeI'm not sure if you have gone to go seek help for your symptoms as of yet, but after reading this, I definitely think that you should. You may have had a bad migraine, but some of the symptoms you've described in this post like trouble with speech, severe headache and feeling "weird" are included in symptoms of a stroke. I'm not a doctor and I don't mean to scare you, but I definitely think you should let your doctor know everything that is going on with you, even if this has not happened again since the last time, let them know everything! It's the only way they can truly help. :) Good luck and I hope that you get better soon!

  • Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS)? would explain many of your symptoms (thou not the pubic hair loss). You say you have orthostatic issue already and POTS commonly has other orthostatic issues coexisting including orthostatic hypotension.At least 9 of your symptoms are ones which one sees with POTS. (can also cause numbness).http://www.dinet.org/symptoms.htm
